CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - A southern Illinois museum is among six sites in the state to host a Smithsonian Institution exhibit on water starting next year.
The exhibit explores the importance of water to Americans.
The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan (https://bit.ly/1NGDLGX ) reports it’ll run from Dec. 10, 2016, until Jan. 22, 2017, at the Science Center of Southern Illinois in Carbondale.
Bringing the exhibit to Carbondale is a joint venture between Illinois Humanities and the Smithsonian Institution.
Matt Meacham is a program coordinator for Illinois Humanities. He says water often serves as a vital symbol in literature, art, music, folklore and religious life.
The newspaper reports the exhibit will also be on display in Franklin Grove, Mahomet, Lawrenceville, Valmeyer and Channahon.
